I don't believe you can do anything regarding this matter especially as it is so long since your contract was canceled.
However this matter is obviously still bothering you and you need to find a way to get on with your life, or you are forever going to be at a disadvantage in any work situation.
Make an appointment to see a psychologist or a counselor. And ask them to help you work through the injustices that you still feel. In the short term ring Lifeline 13 11 14 for some assistance with some coping mechanisms.
The law has nothing there to assist you at this point in time.
Emotional scaring from bullying can severely incapacitate or totally destroy your live. You need to do what you can to try and gain some control back in your life so at least you know you have done your best. In this regard you have several options:
1. The first is the legal route but could cost you a lot with little gain. For any financial recompense you will at least have to prove loss of income and /or pain and suffering. Civil action is unlikely to result in any discipline against the company other than potentially having to re-employ you or paying you for any proven financial losses.
However, after three years you are almost certainly outside your claim period. Regardless, I suggest you try to make a time to talk to a reputable work relations lawyer that ideally offers the first meeting free.For your peace of mind It may even be worth paying someone for an hour if you have to just so you know you are not giving up any opportunities. The object is to be able to move on knowing you have done your best. This in itself can be beneficial to some degree of emotional repair.
However, in many cases the law is handicapped in its endevours to be fair to all parties
You then have the options of a taking a more proactive approach.
As long as you are careful to only make allegations (as opposed to factual statements) which you can reasonably substantiate if necessary you have the power of social media at your disposal. Bad publicity is a very powerful tool.
2. Look for company review sites such as Glassdoor.com.au & seek.com.au and post your experiences.
3. Setup a YouTube account incorporating the name of the company and make one or more short videos each explaining a different aspect of your experiences and post to Youtube, Vimeo etc.
You can make any number (more is better) with each including the name of the company in its title and covering a different point. When people search the internet for the company name your videos will most likely come up on the first page as Google loves displaying videos. Companies fear bad publicity which can cost them severe reputation loss and therefore business profits.
3. Setup Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts and post the same info and links to your videos making sure you tag keywords such as the company name and 'bullying', 'unfair dismissal' etc.
As long as you stick to the facts and only report allegations you can defend you may even be offered a settlement for their removal. As long as the company is a corporation and you do not mention names (unless you have clear evidence) you are reasonably safe from a defamation suite - In its most basic form defamation is the making of false statements (even if unintentional) which you can't defend.
Check out defamation laws carefully but as long as you make statements you know are true and can reasonably defend then a defamation suit is unlikely to be an issue for you. However I can almost guarantee you will receive the threat of a very intimidating defamation notice demanding you remove the content or risk being sued which can be a little scary.
Defamation threats are in most cases a standard desperation tactic to try and scare you away. To not issue a defamation notice can to some degree be seen as an admission of guilt so such a notice can be fully expected.
The best way to deal with this (having carefully checked your statements) is to release further media content regarding the companies attempts to shut you up. Keep making videos and keep publishing their their bullying letters - hold them publicly accountable on every contact. This can sometimes lead to the lawyer dropping their client as they don't particularly want their name splashed all over the internet in connection with a bullying defamation action that they know their client is guilty of and has little chance of success.
It is very important that none of your media postings are stated as facts (unless they are based on a Court decision), and that nothing can be interpreted as being malicious in intent. You have to assume a position of an unemotionally involved reporter simply reporting what you have alleged occurred which requires discipline.
These are extreme actions but if you are talking about living the rest of your life as a victim to their bullying tactics then sometimes drastic actions are required. these suggestions are well proven to work and will go a long way to enable you to reclaim your power and self esteem and hopefully make a significant recovery.
Please Note: this is not legal advice. It is survival advice. Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.
